We did it!

We're proud to announce that we reached our goal of donating one million period products in one month to help end period poverty. We couldn't have done it without you.

First periods just got a little easier

Here, we believe in equity

Women's razors placed next to men's razors to highlight price equity

Some call it the “pink tax.” We call it unfair.

We don’t think women should pay more than men for the same thing. So we’re standing up for price equity. After all, a razor is just a razor.
